The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has recently announced an open call for project proposals to be funded under various corpus funds. The call includes projects under several categories such as the ICAR-National Priority Project (NPP), ICAR-Young Scientist Project (YSP), National Agri-Education Project (NAP), Product Development Project (PDP), and ICAR Vikshit Bharat Project (VBP), all of which are relevant to agriculture, including livestock and fishery sciences.

To streamline the submission process and ensure efficiency, ICAR has specified certain instructions and timelines that all applicants must adhere to. Firstly, all proposals must be submitted exclusively through the online mode via the official website at https://pmsef.krishimegh.in/. Proposals submitted in physical or any other form will not be considered and will be rejected outright.

The submission window for online proposals will open on May 1, 2024, starting at 10:00 hrs. However, it's essential to note that the last date and time for submission of online pre-proposals is June 14, 2024, until 17:30 hrs. It's crucial for applicants to adhere to this timeline, as the submission link will automatically deactivate after the stipulated closing date and time, and no further requests will be entertained thereafter.

Upon submission, all received project proposals will undergo processing by the respective Subject Matter Divisions (SMDs) within ICAR. This ensures that each proposal is thoroughly evaluated and considered for funding based on its merit and relevance to the specified categories.

For those interested in submitting proposals or seeking more detailed information, ICAR encourages visiting their official website for comprehensive guidelines and updates regarding the application process.

With this call for project proposals, ICAR aims to foster innovation and research in the agriculture sector while addressing critical challenges and contributing to the overall development.
